Haaland has travelled to Manchester, say Norwegian press
Reports in Norway say Erling Haaland is flying into Manchester to discuss a potential move to United.
Norwegian newspaper Aftonbladet write: “Now it seems that things are going on. Aftenbladet has sources that Erling Braut Haaland and his father Alf-Inge Haaland traveled to Manchester from Sola on Friday morning with a Norwegian plane.”
This is a development to watch as United attempt to tie up a deal ahead of January.
Erling Haaland has scored 28 goals already this season for Red Bull Salzburg and is high on United’s priority list or January.
Getting a deal done ahead of the window would be a big step.
United face competition with BILD reporting RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund want to land the striker.
This latest report claiming Haaland is now in Manchester is a positive step showing we are in pole position to land the 19-year-old, who played under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Molde.
Salzburg are out of the Champions League and have this week sold attacker Takumi Minamino to Liverpool.
Haaland’s exit seems inevitable, the big question is over where he will sign, and it looks increasingly likely that it will be United.
